Wendy Williams was as direct as always when she discussed Lamar Odom admitting he loved Khloe Kardashian while still in a relationship with Taraji P. Henson. The talk show did not try to filter her words when she shared her opinion that the basketball player ‘lost a good one!’
That’s right! Wendy thinks Lamar really lost out when he decided to end things with Taraji ten years ago.
The talk show host started by playing a clip from his upcoming interview for TV ONE’s UNCENSORED.
Lamar was shown admitting he was still in a relationship with the Empire actress when he fell for Khloe.
‘That was the most significant relationship that I had with a black woman as a grown up. I used to carry her picture on the road with me. Nobody knows that, except for dudes who play with me. I just wish I would have done things different with her,’ he says in the preview, adding that he lost her because he was an ‘immature punk.’
‘I didn’t know how to tell her that I was falling in love with another woman named Khloe Kardashian,’ he explained.
In response to this, Wendy told him that ‘Well Lamar, you lost a good one. He didn’t have to add the ‘black’ part because that just adds to [his] nuttiness. I’m offended. He couldn’t break up with her and cheated on Taraji. Then, [he and Khloe] get engaged and married after a month. That’s how lost he was. Poor Lamar. I like him, and he’s been through so much. There’s some people you just give a pass to. Ugh.’
Even though things ended up like that between them, Lamar admitted he was inspired by Taraji.
What impressed him, in particular, was that she was a ‘black woman’ being very dedicated to her craft and working hard to make a name for herself in the industry.
